good morning, america. this morning, fatal fall. a firefighter plums 20 feet to his death at a ball game live on television as his son watches in horror. inside the massive scandal that brought one of the biggest newspapers down in 24 hours. rupert murdoch under huge pressure as the outrage grows. the extraordinary spirit of survival. jaycee dugard breaks her silence about her 18-year ordeal. how she found hope in the middle of her kidnapping hell. >> you just do what you have to do to survive. >> diane sawyer here with her emotional and exclusive interview. princess in prison. she's been a royal for a week. why does she look like her
7:01am
unhappy highness. inside the misery of princess charlene. and good morning, everyone. happy friday and what a crazy scene in great britain. >> oh, my goodness. >> oldest newspaper closed. former editor moments ago arrested. this guy was an aide to the british prime minister and had to address this. other arrests coming for people in the media empire of rupert murdoch, the owner of fox news. >> all because there are allegations the newspaper was hacking into cell phones and an e-mail account of people and not celebrities but victims of murder. >> war widows from afghanistan and iraq. an incredible story. >> incredible to watch. more of diane sawyer's amazing interview of jaycee dugard. what a remarkable and resilient
7:02am
young woman she is and you're going to see more and hear from her. >> the strength and serenity she displays in the interview is incredible. more on casey anthony. we learned her sentence was extended by four more days. the latest on that and the latest on these emergency negotiations in washington to try to prevent the united states going into default. the president called them into a rare session and the changes they're talking about could affect every single american. >> in dramatic ways. first with josh elliott with more on the top stories including this horrible story in the ballpark in texas, george and i were watching the videotape. >> it is horrifying. we do begin with that ballpark tragedy. it seems we've seen it too many times to count. fans leaping interest their seats leaning over railings in desperate purr suit of a fouou ball, the most american of souvenirs. this time one fan went too far and for it he paid the you will
7:03am
pralt price. we want to warn you some may be very hard to watch. it was the second inning. it looked like just another foul ball, but seconds later the fans reaction told a different story. >> i'd rather have that -- >> on the replay we see what horrified the crowd. a man attending the game with his young son next to him falls some 20 feet to the ground. rangers center fielder josh halt had tossed the ball into the stands and the fan, a local firefighter appears to catch it before tumbling over the rail head first. landing behind a 14-foot wall that holds the stadium's video screen. one man standing flex to him in the stands saw the shocking scene play out. >> the gentleman reached out to grab it and lost his balance. went over the rail i reached out to grab him and he went straight down head first. >> reporter: after plummeting to the concrete shannon stone, an
7:04am
area firefighter was taken from the stadium on a stretcher. alert enough to ask emts to check on his son. less than an hour later stone was dead. players and fans shaken in disbelief after hearing of stone's death. even the former president george w. bush and his wife laura were in the stands. eerily similar to this. when a man fell 30 feet from an upper deck who tried to catch a foul ball. shannon stone was not so lucky as him. our thoughts and prayers with the stone family today. this is the second fatal fall actually this year in the bhaij leagues in man. a man was killed during a colorado rockies game after falling some 20 feet. we move on now to the
7:05am
economy. we're expepeing encouraging news from the government's monthly jobs report this morning. it's expected to show that employers added some 90,000 jobs last month. nearly double the number in may. the unemployment rate is expected to hold steady, however, at just over 9%. unemployed homeowners are about to get more help. the obama administration is expanding its foreclosure prevention program allowing qualified homeowners to defer mortgage payments for a year or more instead of just three to four months. and investigators in michigan are unraveling a horrific day there. a day-long shooting rampage that left eight dead. it began when an ex-convict shot seven people to death including his own daughter and another child. he then led police on a high-speed chase bullets flying all the way. finally he burst into a home taking three hostages before turning the gun on himself. hackers have exposed a
7:06am
security flaw in the software that runs the iphone, ipad and itouch. you're vulnerable when you open pdf files when hackers can view your confidential information or intercept phone calls. apple is said to be working on the fix.x. that is a look at headlines. 6 past the hour. elizabeth and george, back to you. >> now we turn to the huge scandal shaking britain. the prime minister admitting that politicians in the press have become too cozy and promising a massive investigation as the turmoil that brought down one of the nation's oldest newspapers are leading to arrests happening right now. abc's jeffrey kofman has the latest. this continues to unfold at a massive rate. >> reporter: it sure does, elizabeth. this really is an earthquake here. look at "the daily telegraph." good-bye cruel world.
7:07am
"hacked to death." this rocked his media empire to the core. today, the first casualty arising from the scandal andy coulson arrested. he was editor of "news of the world" while reporters broke the law. incredibly he became chief spokesman for britain's prime minister. he too tarnished by this scandal. >> is it time you say you screwed up? >> he had resigned from "news of the world." he said at the time he didn't know what was happening on his watch. he should have known what was happening on his watch. he paid the price and resigned. >> reporter: while 200 will lose their job, not rebecca brooks even though she was the other editor. >> it was reported she offered her resignation and in this situation i would have taken it. >> reporter: her outspoken boss, rupert murdoch, who is in idaho this week is standing by her.
7:08am
do you walk this fast all the time? >> i do when i'm running away from you guys. >> reporter: but he can't run away from the reality that his empire has been exposed to things so shocking despite its 168-year history he is sitting it down for good. >> it is clear that "news of the world" as owned and managed by rupert murdoch was a criminal organization. >> reporter: it was hated by celebrities, politicians, even the royals for its relentless pursuit of sensational stories. remember the duchess of york caught selling access to prince andrew. beckham's secret affair. it made it hugely profitable for murdoch. that changed this week with revelations that they hacked the voice mails of 4,000 people, not just celebrities but families of a murdered teen, terrorist victims and british soldiers who died abroad. paul mcmullen is a former reporter and editor at the
7:09am
paper. you had to get the story at all costs. >> what would you stop -- would you stop at doing anything to get a story? you would go and do anything. >> reporter: even breaking the law? >> absolutely. >> reporter: there are even allegations that reporters at the "news of the world" bribed police to get scoops. by swiftly killing the paper murdoch may hope the scandal will go away. that's not likely. the indignation is enormous. there are criminal investigations under way. public inquiries to follow and, elizabeth, we can expect more casualties. >> all right, jeffrey kofman, thanks so much. shocking to hear that reporter say, absolutely, we'll break the law to get the story. >> they hacked 4,000 people. okay. we turn to the high-stakes showdown in washington overr reducing our deficit and raising the debt limit before our line of credit expires. at a summit yesterday they tried to agree to hammer out a deal before another emergency meeting sunday afternoon.
7:10am
>> everybody acknowledged that we have to get this done before the hard deadline of august 2nd to make sure that america does not default for the first time on its obligations. and everybody acknowledged that there's going to be pain invovoed politically on all sides. >> the question now are the members of congress on both sides ready to take those painful votes? we bring in jake tapper for more on this, jake, what they're talking about is trying to come up with a deal that would reduce the deficit by $4 trillion over the next 10 years. that means major changes in spending and taxes. >> reporter: that's right, george. both president obama and house speaker john boehner are pushing for this larger $4 trillion deficit reduction package. that means republicans are pushing for some reductions in entitlement spending meaning medicaid and medicare and social security, payments for recipients of those programs
7:11am
would likely be cut especially for the wealthier recipients of medicare and social security. and then democrats are pushing for some tax increases and closing of tax loopholes including the end of oil and gas company subsidy, the end of some business tax breaks and capping the deductible for wealthier americans. on the whole, this would be about $4 trillion in deficit reduction over a decade or so. >> if it passes but coming out of the meeting speaker boehner says there's only a 50/50 chance. >> reporter: there's something in the package for everyone to hate. this is the difficulty of doing a bill like this where you're trying to reach the middle. they know that they're going to lose liberals because of the entitlement cuts and lose tea party conservatives because of the tax increases so they are trying to get the middle. that's what makes this so difficult because the balance of that is nearly impossible. >> jake, quickly, only a few
7:12am
seconds left. if they can't get that big deal they might try for a smaller one. what happens on august 2nd if there is no agreement. >> reporter: the u.s. government runs out of money. some are looking for ways to roll over some of the debt, but this is really just managing a sinking ship more than anything. on august 4th, $87 billion in debt comes due and there needs to be a new debt to take its place, george. >> jake, thanks very muchch turning now to casey anthony. she'll have to wait a little bit longer before she gets out of jail. adding an additional four days and with time already served a week from sunday will now be her last day behind bars. abc's ashleigh banfield is in orlando with the latest. how did they come up with this recalculated release date? >> reporter: just different math and honestly this is such a frenzy yesterday it's assumed they did this so quickly, once orange county jail officials went back over the numbers they realized it wasn't right. it was more clerical as we
7:13am
understand than anything else but it means she's getting out a little later than she thought. >> she will get out with a lot of hostility. we hear death threats have increased against everybody including the judge. >> reporter: they've done incredible beefing up of security. the protesters you saw outside the courthouse were mentioned inside the courtroom as judge perry said somebody threatened to slay a juror and feed their pieces to the piranhas. the judge said he's having trouble crossing the street to go to judge. >> we heard therapists have been calling casey anthony's lawyers offering services. some say she needs professional help once she gets out. >> reporter: that's what chaney mason said. you would be surprised how many called up and offered these services for free. we don't know if she'll avail herself of that. that's a surprising new detail.
7:14am
that july 17th release date is two days after this entire story began three years ago when we first learned that little girl was gone. >> ashleigh banfield in orlando, thanks so much. for american royal watchers, the wait is almost over, after nine days of charming canada will and kate arrive in the united states for a weekend of stars and pears in hollywood. abc's bob woodruff is one step ahead of the royal couple where the newlyweds will land in just a few hours. >> reporter: the world's most famous newlyweds today are wrapping up their coast-to-coast tour of canada. >> in 1939 my great grandmother, queen elizabeth, the queen mother said of her first tour of canada with her husband king george vi, canada made us. catherine and i now know what she meant. >> reporter: they got a taste of cowboy culture. at each stop adoring crowds in the thousands and an intense
7:15am
focus on the duchess and her outfits. next stop, los angeles where the attention is expected to intensify. >> l.a. is more used to big hollywood stars than anywhere else but these are stars of such a different nature. this is a real life and prince and princess. >> reporter: the neighborhood around the british consulate will be sealed off. homeowners signed agreement that they wouldn't allow paparazzi on their property. one neighbor put up a screen. >> nobody will be trying anything out of the ordinary. no hiding in bushes or no climbing on trees. no paying off a neighbor to look out of their windows. >> reporter: while in tinseltown they will hobnob with some of the biggest names in hollywood, j. lo, tom hanks, josh brolin and more. >> they're coming over here and sort of like royalty to us, as well. we look at them as our "a" list star, even greater than that. we don't have our own royalty here. who can you think of as royalty
7:16am
in the u.s.? paris hilton? >> reporter: the most anticipated british invasion in years. >> i expect they'll outshine every other tar there because it is a magical fairy tale. people in l.a. are hugely exc e excited. >> reporter: this is going to be a very, very intense trip over the next three day, probably thought a lot of sleep like they did in canada. william's been here before but kate has never been here before in terms of security, it'll be handled by the los angeles police department and the state department which they expect a lot of big groups and they've actually told us that this seems almost like the president of the united states is coming here and it's getting very, very close to that even, george. >> wow. a fun weekend. bob, thanks so much. sam is having fun in central park this morning. >> because it's friday concert time, george, elizabeth, good morning, everybody. let's get to the boards. pictures out of titusville, florida, close to cape canaveral. why we're showing them. this is from yesterday.

7:19am
>> reporter: in the "thomas crowne affair." he plays a perfect plan. sometimes reality is a little less exciting. police in stance say their art thief is 30 kwlrld mark lugo. not exactly thomas crowne but a guy from new jersey who just had flown in. >> in san francisco we'll solve the crimes and recover property and the bad guys will go to jail. >> reporter: he went after the picasso pencil sketch valued at $275,000 by simply walking in to san francisco's weinstein gallery and lifting it off the wall in front of everyone. the getaway wasn't any better. surveillance cameras captured the suspect carrying the picasso down the sidewalk in plain view, not to a waiting getaway car but to hail a cab. >> it was at 11:40 the call was made. this is at 11:35 or something. the girl from the gallery is in the video with him ten seconds
7:20am
looking around for him. >> reporter: that footage and cab driver helped them zero in on lugo. the picasso wasn't damaged but it was out of its frame. there was a fedex box nearby and police suspect he may have been trying to ship it somewhere. they found him in the say ralph lauren sunglasses as the man in the footage. he is in jail with a picasso sized bail of $5 million. >> i want to be available to the public. we just need to do a better job in the future to make sure security is in place. >> reporter: the gallery might want to consider more than a hook on the wall for security. for "good morning america," neal karlinsky, abc news, seattle. >> how about an alarm that goes off. coming up, the extraordinary story of jaycee dugard. how she found hope in the middle of her nightmare and the strength to survive. diane sawyer with that. trapped in a royal cage. why does the royal's newest princess seem so miserable?

now is the fight against obesity really working? despite years of anti-obesity campaigning in the nation and billions spent, a new report says america is only getting fatter. right now our thinnest state has an obesity rate so high in 1995 it would have qualified as our fattest state. what has gone so wrong? andrea canning has more. good morning, andrea. >> reporter: good morning, elizabeth. well, you can certainly chalk it up to big portions and a lot of couch potatoes. mississippi takes the dubious honor of being the heaviest state followed by alabama, west virginia and tennessee which weren't too far behind. these record numbers are really hitting across the country. supersized, extra, all you can

good morning. we are dealing with a stormy day possible out there so with that, we have a slash flood wap and that's in effect through tonight and that's for all areas here shaded in grep. reason why is we have the potential for flooding. look at the moisture that we have in the atmosphere. you can see the dark greens here. 71 for dew point in baltimore. more of the same into dc. check out easton now. 77 the dew point is almost 8 06789 it's just miserable. into easton and with all the moisture, and you have a stationary front i will show you that and we do have the potential for showers and thunderstorms and some of those storms could be on the severe side. satellite and radar not picking up on anything around the area as of now. but check out what's around us. we have a liven showers and thunderstorms approaching the area. moving into west virginia as of now and line of thunderstorms moving up from the south. so, just to the south of ocean city as of now. so this is what i am showing you. that's the stationary front and that's warm moist air feeding in throughout the day.
8:58am
so the storm prediction center does have us in a slight risk and if we do go severe then the biggest threat will be wet to microbust out there. that's that wind that hits the ground in a big blast. so we have the future radar showing you what's happening as we go throughout the afternoon. and again, the showers and thunderstorms definitely likely and then by saturday, things look better more of the same on sunday, and the temperature for today 86 degrees. and showers and thunderstorms flash flood watch until this evening and by tonight, temperatures coming in at 69 degrees. very soupy and very miserable outside once again. and then tomorrow, and then a big smile with the temperatures around 88 because we will see plenty of sun shine and then we get hot again as we go into next week with showers and thunderstorms returning.
